The Strange Foundation exists to help build momentum towards a more sustainable, equitable, and imaginative future. This November, it's imperative that we elect progressive leaders who will fight for change with a similar vision in mind. As an entity, we fulfill our mission by supporting artists and organizers who leverage their creativity to catalyze change, and as we count down to election day, we're looking to do what we can to support organizers, mutual-aid groups, collectives, and artist-led projects working strategically and creatively to seed meaningful change.

With only weeks to go before the 2020 election, we're calling on our community for your nominations: Who's working on creative, strategic election-focused work, and needs an infusion of support?

Using your nominations, we'll distribute $10,000 between five projects in the form of $2,000 Infusion Grants. We'll also create a Directory of Initiatives featuring all the election-focused projects nominated by our community, and work with editorial partners to help add pre-election momentum to the work that's being done.
